Remember the joke about the Lone Ranger and Tonto?

The Lone Ranger and Tonto find themselves surrounded by fierce indians they had been trying to escape from. The Lone Ranger says, "Tonto, we are surrounded by Indians! What shall we do?” To which Tonto replied, “What mean ‘WE,’ white man!”

Unions and Wall Street Banks are the primary beneficiaries of the bailouts, stimulus packages, and other Greedy Government programs which drain the middle class of tax money and jobs. Now that Unions see the threat of angry public protests, they're joining the protests against the complete financial mis-management by government and wall street. Unions find themselves surrounded, and are now pretending to be part of the people out of self-preservation.

Shift the crosshairs of the protest against Greedy Unions who lobbied for mega bailouts and tax hikes along with the Banks. They're not of the people or for the people, instead they prey on workers as well as companies.

They are simply infiltrating.

The Tea Party had no leadership, and thus was doomed to failure because it's ideologies were not established and protected by a central force.

Exact same thing is happening with "Occupy" protests. People seem to think leaderless "revolutions" are good, when in fact it's the height of stupidity. Occupy is vulnerable and leaderless, the Unions have power and money, influence and numbers. They will infiltrate and use the Occupy Protests as a means to spread a "new" message for a "new change" and in the end support Democrats for office. In fact, I would expect to see Democrats coming out of the woodwork and begin doing public speaking stunts infront of the crowds soon.

Its painfully obvious yet mind boggling and imperceptible to those who don't bother to question how and why.

Sounds like both of you are describing this: Wikipedia a.k.a. 'Useful innocents'.

There certainly seems to be a danger that a leaderless collection may one day discover they're marching with the opposition.

Reminds me of Cuckoo or Whydah birds who place their eggs in other nests.

Cool thread, but I would like to point out that this movement does have a leader.
His name is President Obama.

Excuse me while a barf. Obama and leader together is an oxymoron

If that's the case, the opposition is marching with the people.

George Soros is also leading this movement.

I guess they will have to duke it out along with Warren Buffet, the self proclaimed Osama Bin Laden of Capitalism.

It's time we all realize this isn't a 'revolution'...it's just another big labor political rally.
